** Two episodes later, in "[[Recap/Daredevil2015S2E3NewYorksFinest New York's Finest]]", Frank Castle's war on the Hell's Kitchen criminals has put the gangs at war, and the blood is so bad that gangbangers are trying to settle scores on the emergency room floor and don't care if ER staff or bystanders get hurt. Foggy happens to be at the hospital with Claire, trying to look for Matt, when one skirmish breaks out. Foggy is left stuck in the middle, and seeing how neither of the armed security guards present are in a position to do something, he speaks up.

* Stolen City's music video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksYre7Av4OE "Faces"]] has the father of the transgender girl. He doesn't raise his fists to defend her from the bullies. He just walks into the bar, shoots each of them a DeathGlare and makes it clear they won't be picking on his daughter again.

** His exploits and humor are also detailed at #3 in the Website/{{Cracked}} article below, and the Klan leader was Grand Dragon John Lee Clary, who eventually took to public speaking about just how messed up his world-view was when he still belonged to the KKK. And this was only because, as Clary was about to receive a HeelFaceDoorSlam, he reached out to Watts, [[TurnTheOtherCheek who invited Clary to speak at his church over the objections of his parishioners]].

* Thorfinn achieves his greatest moral victory in ''Manga/VinlandSaga'' this way. In order to stop a war, he asks to see the king of one of the sides. One of the king's bodyguards tries to chase him off by punching him, only to discover that Thorfinn won't be persuaded no matter how many blows he lands. Thorfinn then makes a bet that if he can tank one hundred blows to the face, he'll be allowed to speak to the king -- and pulls it off, completely exhausting the bodyguard in the process who at the end can barely lift his arms. When asked why he simply didn't punch out the bodyguard to prove his credentials, Thorfinn points out that negotiating for peace by punching someone is a self-contradiction. [[spoiler:He then proceeds to successfully solve the conflict nonviolently by telling the king that if he's going to keep pursuing TheNeedsOfTheMany, Thorfinn is going to [[StartMyOwn build his own kingdom where the Few can flee to]]. Canute is so amused he backs down.]]

* Literature/TheFourGospels tells the story of UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}}, a man who managed to defy the hatred of the hypocritical Pharisee clergy, the tyrannical Roman Empire, and the unrelenting [[{{Satan}} Devil]] by allowing himself to be executed in the most brutal way they could muster, only to prove that even their greatest weapon, death, was nothing to the might of {{God}} by rising from the dead. This goes along with his teachings to TurnTheOtherCheek, not to harbor anger for a brother, and to love one's enemies. Needless to say, this upset fans of the [[Manga/{{Jesus}} original manga]].

* Euphemia vi Britannia from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is one of the nicest people you could ever meet, would never hurt a fly, and dreams of peace and equality between Britannians and Japanese. And being so good and noble, even [[TheChessmaster Lelouch]] can't bring himself to kill her, and her path to giving the Japanese their rights utterly derails his ambition to take power through bloody revolution. [[spoiler: Sadly, it wasn't meant to be.]]

-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' Hey, asshole! How many priors you got?
-->'''Gangbanger 1:''' What'd you say to me?
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' I asked you about your priors.
-->'''Gangbanger 2:''' Yeah, keep talking shit, I'll check you into ICU myself.
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' You got face tattoos, friend. That's like telegraphing, "I know what prison meatloaf tastes like."
-->'''Gangbanger 2:''' You just better step back, now.
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' I'm not gonna ask if you know what happens when you get charged with assault. I got a hunch you got more mugshots than baby pictures back home.
-->'''Gangbanger 2:''' Man, who are you?
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' I'm the pro-bono suit you'll try to retain after you go down for this. Only not even my soft-hearted partner will take your case, or any other self-respecting attorney in Hell's Kitchen. Not because you're so badass, but because you're just. That. Stupid.
-->'''Gangbanger 2:''' You got a big mouth, asshole.
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' You forget, I do this for a living. I could ask you to look at the faces of the other patients. Every last one of 'em scared to death, because the two of you can't keep it in your pants. But I'm guessing that neither one of you could give a collective shit. So I'm gonna do what attorneys do best and appeal to your selfish natures. Simply put, if you carve each other up now, in front of these witnesses, with cops right outside, you're screwed!
-->'''Gangbanger 2:''' I can't just walk away, man.
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' I'm not asking you to lose the oh-so-serious stink-eye. Just don't fight! Put 'em down. Let these people do their jobs.

* Eiffel from ''Podcast/Wolf359'' is a lazy, irresponsibe ActualPacifist and proud founder of Team What's Wrong With Handcuffs. He also outsmarted a scientific genius with nothing but a voice modifier and a cigarette, and [[spoiler: survived for over 180 days on a broken ship in deep space by freezing himself to the point of losing his hair, nails and half his bodyweight]]. Yikes.
